he did suggest that israel has the ability to make the decision itself. i by the obama administration has been more his important to give israel any such green light. i think both have said an nuclear weapon is unacceptable but where you may see a little bit more difference is romney may be inclined earlier to bless a israel decision to use force or participate in it in himself. i think it's an important nuance. >> jennifer: very quickly what further sanctions could help to bring iran to the negotiating table? i think the sanctions were already pretty tough. >> i think they are. i think it's a punishment strategy more than a persuasion strategy. you know at some point they agree to a compromise position but basically we're hurting them a lot already. if their oil exports are down by half, the currency has declined by half anyway but the regime may not care, and that's the real dilemma. >> jennifer: sure. i really appreciate you coming inside "the war room" to explain the unrest. all right. political junksies coming up we'll tell you why the preside

[laughter] in this case the institution i believe still has religious freedom, but other parties are involved and they have their freedoms, too, their religious freedom, in addition these catholic institutions receive government funding for their operations. so, you have here attention of these different conflicting rights going on here. the rules proposed by the obama administration first say that the church institutions had to provide contraceptive health care insurance for their and please. not only the u.s. catholic bishops, but many other catholics and many other proponents and religious liberty oppose the obama administration and regulation they then propose a compromise that such employees would be covered for contraception but the institution wouldn't have to pay for it. they call that a brilliant solu
're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> we know that actually the obama administration is responsible for taking us from 800,000 jobs being lost to gaining over 100,000 jobs on average for the last few months. we had 5.1 million jobs created over the course of the last 30 months. the middle class most people believe, the middle class is doing better today than at the end of the bush administration, but let's hear what joe biden actually does think. >> gentlemen it's never never never been a good bet to bet against the american people. never. >> woo-hoo! that's sungle joe in full recovery mode. >> who doesn't like uncle joe? i like him warts and all. apparently the ladies love cool joe. >> nothing excited me more than to see that picture of him with the bikers. you've seen that picture. >> yes. i was a little nervous to see that woman was sitting in his lap. she was not actually in his lap. i was fortunate to take my mother to the white house for an event. she was happy to meet one of the members of the four tops as anybody in the administration. when we g

administration stories shifted in all of that and maybe if you don't already like obama, maybe that will help inform your choice of whether to vote for him, but not it seems lately because it's given you the information or the tools to think about what ought to happen in libya or what our policy and let the ought to be to really come to praise and foreign policy coverage as character coverage. i think those categories in a way get confused. you have separated them out, but it's -- or we learned about the world when we read that article or are we learning about whether mitt romney cares about the little guy or about whether obama is brave? i think it is a tricky question because you might indeed get the information that you feel you need to know to vote for this person or that person. but there's also the other little issue about learning about the articles are about more about the actual problems in the world beyond the election might be coming and i don't think that the character thing is negligible. it is important if somebody cares about the little guy. that is crucial about how they see t

leadership of al-qaeda is gone. they have been targeted and killed by the obama administration. osama bin laden no longer is a threat to the united states and neither is moammar gadhafi. and iran is nowhere closer to getting a nuclear weapon than they were before president obama took office. and america's prestige is up all over the world. the most popular person in europe today is barack obama. so people look differently and more kindly and more as a friend and partner to the united states than they ever did under george bush and dick cheney. i think this president has made a huge contribution in lifting the united states in the eyes of the world, and we are safer today than we ever were under george bush and dick cheney. 866-55-press, what do you say. >> announcer: radio meets telejigs. the "bill press show" now on current tv. of this democracy and see your tweets up on our screen. >>now that's politically direct. >> announcer: heard around the ♪ >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >> bill: you got it 26 minutes after the hour. before we get to your calls on

amendment center analyzed the issues of the day including the obama administration contraception rule as part of the new health care law. >> is this on? hello, everybody. i am nichelle. so, let's get started. covering religion in america means writing about religious freedom. what does it mean? how far does it go and who gets it? when i started this nearly eight years ago, everyone was talking about the book on religious literacy and how to bring religion more into the public schools. the last couple of years, we have all written about bitter divisions over islam and measures around the country to limit sharia law and stop mosques from being built. in the past year, we have written about the standoff between catholic bishops and the white house over the mandate to provide contraception and differing views on whether that violates religious liberty. as we were organizing this, every week seemed to bring new fodder for this panel. we always seemed to get new topics that would come up. is there any point at which a video critical of another faith goes over the line pat? can polygamists u
opinion for a somewhat stronger american stance vis-a-vis the syrian conflict than the obama administration has thus far adopted. governor romney's speech today is almost certain to raise this point, whether it will raise it in a way that captures the public imagination and strikes them as sensible remains to be seen, but i would say that this survey and governor rom ty's speech -- romney's speech plus developments on the ground may be the entering wedge for what i personally regard as an overdue public debate about what the united states ought to be doing vis-a-vis the syrian conflict. >> bill, thank you so much. um, let me now turn to hisham, and bill talked about the apparent polarization of u.s. public opinion on foreign policy issues. perhaps not surprising four weeks out from a campaign in which foreign policy has suddenly and surprisingly begun to play a significant role in both the campaigns. but what we see in the arab world is with the emergence of more democratic politics, polarization as well. around a number of issues that relate to the relationship, the interact
about the specifics. you even have a case where the congress and the obama administration slowed the growth of medicare spending by $700 billion, and they're being attacked by republicans for having done that. so, in an environment where you can't talk about medicare, in an environment where no one will talk about base broadeners, everyone talks about loophole closers, how do you, how do you get from here to there? and let me ask doug, first, you said that the environment will be different in 2013. other than this pressure you talked about pro the rating agencies what will get these guys singing kumbayah with each other? >> they're not going to sing kumbayah. i don't want to pretend that they will. this environment is the worst but this would be the right time to fix the fiscal cliff so we don't have to worry about the economics. not happening. lame duck would be the second worst. and for all the reasons i outlined i think it is very unlikely we'll do anything real significant. do the little bit you can to avoid damage and get to next year where, i think they're going to be outsi
